Nebraska landed its first commit under new head coach Mike Riley Saturday night in the form of New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr linebacker Tyrin Ferguson.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Ferguson had been committed to Oregon State since last April and had been recruited by Beaver linebacker coach Trent Bray. News surfaced today that Bray had been offered and accepted a position to coach at Nebraska and a few hours later Ferguson tweeted that he was switching his pledge to the Huskers.

Ferguson comes from a high school that Nebraska is all too familiar with. The Huskers signed linebacker Jaevon Walton and wide receivers Glenn Irons and Jariah Tolbert from Edna Karr last year. Irons and Tolbert redshirted this season while Walton plans to enroll at semester as long as his scholarship is still honored under Riley.
The Huskers now sit with 14 commitments with the additions of Ferguson.
